Developing and delivering your message requires the synergy of many moving parts and our planning process is key to your success.
The first step we take is gaining a thorough understanding of your marketing universe. We assess your contact databases and how they are segmented. We itemize your organization's structure, how you go to market, your marketing assets, website, social and traditional campaigns. Do you use CMS or CRM systems, and how well do they integrate with your website and sales efforts? What support, content generation and financial resources are at your disposal? What performance benchmarks have you set? Our questions result in creating a go-to-market plan which ties points of measurement that are routinely analyzed and acted upon.
Lodico has experienced marketers, programmers, content-builders and SEO expertise, and we also have strong global network of researchers, IT experts, editors, media professionals and even application developers. Once we synthesize our research and resources, we present you with our ideas for connecting all these pieces into an integrated, coherent plan within your budget that will deliver the results you seek.
